Strangely MD is one of the likeliest to curse but also one of the most courteous. =\
“ Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was? Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses. Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what’s known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale. ”
vegan revisionism really bothers me as an anthropologist
humans are advanced enough to where they can subsist on chips and coke and also be vegans, its not a huge deal u can do whatever u want, but dont pull that ‘your body is not biologically meant to eat meat’ bullshit. not only do you know nothing about physical anthropology and how the modern human evolved but you dont know shit about domestication and animal husbandry.
how certain species of animals and plants would not even exist were it not for domestication, how there is plenty of proof that animals enter into domestic relationships because it benefits THEM, and how different cultures have different relationships to the consumption of plant and animals— but it is only modern capitalism that disavows any sense of humane treatment to the animals.
on many levels, militant white vegans really offend me because they completely undermine the complex culturally situated relationships between people and animals. its not even about their general classism. ‘animal rights’ is not a construction that exists in many societies but those societies continue to consume animals and treat them a hell of a lot better.
